Re: Hourglass Chart

Try the standard Ancestor and Descendant Diagram icon from the main toolbar.

Alternatively, use View > Standard Diagram Types > Bow Tie – All.

When you say print do you mean actually print on to paper?


With Diagram open use Diagram > Save Diagram As > PDF File (.pdf) and accept the defaults to produce a PDF file that can be printed usually on one page.


There is a File > Print command but you must get the paper size, page boundaries, and scale correct to fit it all on one page.


Further advice is in the FHUG Knowledge Base.

Subject: [family-historian] Hourglass Chart


Can I actually print what used be called an Hourglass Chart.  From memory I think it prints a chart left to right for the main family members and then a list of ancestors and Descendants,

Sorry bit vague was a long long while ago that I saw one.
